UAE-based metal band Voice of the Soul will start recording their debut full-length album in April at Haven Studio in Dubai, almost 3 years after their 2011 EP release, Into Oblivion. The album will be produced by musician/producer Hadi Sarieddine.

Guitarist and long-time member Monish Shringi comments, “This album will explore new influences compared to past releases. It’s fast, destructive, and reaches newer milestones. Definitely our most diverse and enduring effort.”

The album will also be drummer Khalid Temimi’s first release with Voice of the Soul since joining in January 2012. “It’s new, and it sounds fresh,” says Khalid, “We’ve reached another pinnacle, not only as a band, but as individual musicians. This album will open up one hell of a new chapter for Voice of the Soul!”

Voice of the Soul are also excited to have Daylight Dies’ bassist and singer, Egan O’Rourke, feature on the album. Guitarist and frontman Kareem Chehayeb commented, “Having Egan involved with us is something I’m really excited about. I’m already ecstatic about recording the new material with Hadi, a good friend of mine, so having one of my favorite singers from one of my favorite bands just takes my excitement to a whole new level.”

Haven Studio’s Hadi Sarieddine is looking forward to producing Voice of the Soul’s debut full-length. Hadi commented, “I’m really stoked about working with Voice of the Soul; besides the fact the guys are my good friends and I’ve known them for a while I really enjoy the band’s material. We’ve been working hard at pre-production and there’s a cool blend of really dark and very melodic moments on the new album, a little bit for fans of different genres of metal. I look forward to producing and engineering it.”
